C or F.  If I must pick only one, I'd go with C.  Both of those shots are really lovely.

So happy to see your finished gifts!  Great job!  I especially liked the marble magnets using the morse code phrase - very creative and special.  Good luck at school!!!

I am amazed at your dedication and hard work!  Totally hit "This Rocks"  Shocked
4  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Weird window popping up (stack overflow at line...) on: August 07, 2008 06:39:02 PM
Ditto.  I thought maybe I had yet another problem with ye olde laptop, but it's definitely restricted to Craftster.  I also think it's connected to ads in some way.
5  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Precious Awakening: Crocheting & Knitting for Pregnancy and Infant Loss on: August 05, 2008 02:45:18 AM
What a wonderful project!  I think I'll go speak to someone at our local hospital and try to get a feel for what they need and would use.  We've had five miscarriages, and when we lost "Ruth" at 18 weeks, the nurse gave us a booklet on grieving, a blank journal, and a card with her tiny footprints on it, all in a beautiful quilted bag.  It meant a lot to us then, but honestly it meant even more to us once the shock and numbness wore off and we could really treasure the time we did have with her.  We also put her little ultrasound picture in there.  One thing we learned was that ultrasound pictures must be scanned or copied, since the ink degrades over time and the picture is lost.  Maybe a tip to pass on to other moms out there. 

Blessings on you for your caring work!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Social Stigma of Public Display of Knit-fection on: August 05, 2008 02:37:55 AM
I'm totally butting in here, since I have no "when I knit in public" story to share, but...I'm surprised, honestly.  You guys don't like having someone curious about your work?  Or admiring it?  I think I am the person you're all talking about, and I'm very very sorry Undecided  I had no idea.  Generally, I'm just making conversation to cover the fact that I'm dying to learn, no-one will teach me (well, unless I pony up some dough for a class), and I'm trying to look over your shoulder and try to figure out how on earth you're working that magic Wink!  Handcrafts of all sorts fascinate me, and I guess I just assume if you're doing it in public, it's okay to talk about/ask about it.  Oops.  On the other hand, I promise, swearing on a stack of the holy book of your choice, it wasn't ever me saying it's a waste of time, or that it could or should be purchased - gasp - cheaper.  Shame shame shame, people!

I had to laugh hysterically over the intaglia story.  Your mom sounds awesome!  I'm not at all sure my mother's ever heard "the C word", and if she ever has, I'm sure she's repented by now Grin.  My best friend's mom, however, would love the design.

Very clever, I love it!  So nice for children with a boo-boo (when cold) or just to snuggle with on a chilly night (when warmed).  Great idea
8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Umbilical Cord hat and windy city scarf IN A SET on: August 04, 2008 08:27:48 PM
I love the color combo!  I have never heard of a "Windy City" scarf, either, but that's the best idea ever!  I'd love one of those for each of my kids - maybe their scarves would actually stay on that way.
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: messing with the macro function... on: August 04, 2008 08:24:27 PM
Like nearly everyone else, I vote for #2.  Nice contrast of sharp and unfocused, light and dark, color and monochrome.  Nicely framed, and those little thinner petals that jaunt off to the left injects even more life into this picture - very dynamic.  Good work!

You just made my geeky little heart sing!  Beautiful!
